PATERSON — The shooting of a man outside a nightclub late Monday afternoon remained under investigation.

Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes said police were called to the Bonfire Monfongo House Lounge on Market Street around 4:25 p.m. and found a man with what appeared to be gunshot wounds lying in the road.

The man, identified by Valdes as Divan E. Tejeda, 23, of Clifton, was later pronounced dead at Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center.

Valdes did not disclose the circumstances of the shooting. No arrests have yet been made.

The Daily Voice reported police are looking for a black Dodge Charger in connection with the shooting.

Valdes asked anyone with additional information about this incident to contact her office at 1-877-370-PCPO or Paterson police at 973-321-1120.

The shooting was Paterson's 13th shooting of the year with four homicides, according to a Paterson Press tally.

Best coffee shops & cafes near NJ beaches

When it comes to food, New Jersey is known for many things such as pizza and pork roll. Don't count us out when it comes to coffee.

With all the hustle and bustle involved in the average New Jersey resident's day, coffee is essential. It doesn't matter whether you're living in the cities of North Jersey or the vacation spots at the shore.

In fact, as the former owner of two Jersey shore coffee houses, Coffee Dot Comedy in Sea Isle City and the Daily Grind in Ocean Grove, I know firsthand how much people at the Jersey shore love their coffee.

With respect to that, I asked my social media following where the best coffee houses at the Jersey Shore were, especially since my two places no longer exist.

Below is what they came up with. (And see this other article for their coffee shop and cafe recommendations for Central Jersey.)
